Each Month Sarajo"s husband, Eric puts up a photo to inspire her to use up some of her beads. They call it The Honey Do List.
They have invited others to play along which I enjoy doing very much!
Here is this month's inspiration and what Eric had to say about it: I wanted to use a shot from our recent trip to Oregon for this month's challenge. I took this picture at the Japanese Gardens in Portland, where I noticed the reflection of the ferns on the top of the rippling reflecting pool. I waited several minutes, dodging small children, until a koi happened by--making the shot even more interesting. Take inspiration from the color palette, the fish, the ferns, the water, the clouds--whatever strikes your fancy!
So last night I happened to catch the sunset and I think it is spectacular. What I really think is exciting was the colors and where I ended up this month with this challenge.
I made bead after bead after bead. All month trying to figure out how to reflect the photo. Last minute I found a tin and made a mostly orange necklace. I can't wear orange but I sure do like it..1
I used Swarovski Crystal beads along with some small Czech beads and a polymer clay bead. I made the tin focal. I used this because the orange reflected the Koi fish and there is a fern pattern on it with a little water swirl
